Two walkers were airlifted and another pair brought to safety by rescuers after getting stuck in severe weather on Scotland’s most southerly munro.

The Prestwick Coastguard helicopter flew to the scene near the summit of Ben Lomond on Wednesday.

Two of the walkers were found by the search and rescue aircraft and flown from the 974m (3,196ft) mountain.

A second pair of walkers were found by members of Lomond Mountain Rescue Team and helped from the mountain to one of the team’s vehicles.

Rescuers described conditions, which included snow and high winds, as ‘challenging’.
